    I guess you mean prefix по- [po]
    Посмотрите [posmotrite]
    Поговорите [pogovorite]
    perfective aspect
    идти́ — to go (imperfective)
    пойти́ — to go (perfective)
    for a while, a little
    говори́ть — to talk
    поговори́ть — to have a talk, to talk a little

    there is more information about prefix po http://learnrussian.rt.com/grammar-tables/verbs-of-motion-with-the-prefix-po/
